Ep. 4: Last Rites for a Lone Jew in China

In Episode 4 of Lamplighters: Stories From Chabad Emissaries On The Jewish Frontier, Rabbi Sholom Greenberg, a Chabad Shliach from China, tells the story of how he and the Jewish community in and around Shanghai helped a Jew who had lived – and died – alone in a nearby city. The Chinese government wanted to cremate, so Rabbi Greenberg had to think – and act – quickly to secure a proper burial for a Jewish man they had never met. 

Lamplighters: Stories From Chabad Emissaries On The Jewish Frontier is producing a series of moving, beautifully produced, sound-rich and often surprising stories of Chabad emissaries and the people they inspire in every corner of the world.
